Chickpea-free paleo hummus

I’m not perfect and sometimes I really don’t like eating raw vegetables. I know they are super healthy for you but I haven’t made it to that point yet. What makes eating raw vegetables easier? Eating them with delicious dipping sauces. My favorite dips include guacamole and hummus. Guacamole is easy to make but hummus on a paleo diet can be a challenge. Luckily I found a great hummus recipe from Son of Grok.

I made a few changes and now I need to be careful not to eat it on everything!

Legume-free hummus that still tastes good!

Paleo Hummus – with Red Pepper Variation

2 peeled and cut medium zucchini
3/4 cup tahini
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
4 cloves garlic (next time, I would roast the garlic because the hummus turned out a little bitter, and I’m not sure if this is the culprit)
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons ground cumin
Paprika for garnish

Directions:

Place zucchini in blender followed by lemon juice, garlic, sea salt, tahini, and cumin. While it blends, pour oil in through the top
Serve with paprika sprinkled on top

Red Pepper Paleo Hummus

Follow above recipe but add 1/2 cup roasted red peppers (the garlic isn’t necessary but I like the flavor)
For extra spice, add a 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

The red pepper hummus will be more runny then the original
